Iran’s Pouraliganji on Leeds United’s Radar: Report

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Championship side Leeds United has set its sight on Iran international defender Morteza Pouraliganji.

Pouraliganji was a target for Turkish football club Trabzonspor but two parties didn’t reach an agreement over the financial issues.

Now, Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds United's head coach, has reportedly showed an interest in signing the 26-year-old defender.

Pouraliganji, who most recently played in Qatar’s Al Sadd, played every minute of the 2018 World Cup campaign, where Team Melli impressed against Morocco, Spain and Portugal.
